Bittman’s Blueberry Cobbler – Modified……with Peaches!
The main reason I made a peach cobbler is the direct result of my sweet tooth acting up. We had a nice dinner planned and no dessert in the house. A fine thing if you are trying to watch the calories. But, as I said, the old sweet tooth started putting ideas in my head about a warm dessert to enjoy on a cold winter’s evening.
Scanning the pantry I did not see any quick fixes such as a brownie mix, pudding mix…no mixes…no fast-food kinda dessert choices. Then I spied a can of peaches. A large can of peaches! Yeeeesssss…….because a simple can of fruit = cobbler. I always have butter and flour in the house.
Another bonus of preparing the dessert is….I can participate in Tackling Bittman. This is blog hop with a cool bonus – a chance to win The Food Matters cookbook by Mark Bittman. Girlichef is giving away a book – interested? Check out her link and the giveaway HERE.
My modified recipe is as follows:
3 cups of canned peaches
3/4 cup sugar
8 TB butter (1 stick), cold unsalted, cut into bits
½ cup all purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
½ tsp. vanilla
Heat oven to 375 F. Toss fruit with half the sugar and spread n a lightly greased 8 inch pan or 9 inch round pan.
Combine flour, baking powder, salt and remaining sugar in a food processor. Add butter bits at a time and process 10 seconds pulsing, until blended.
Beat vanilla and egg together by hand, add to mixture.
Drop mixture by tablespoons onto fruit, do not spread.
Bake 35 – 45 minutes.
There wasn't much left........
You could substitute any fruit that you like…well, maybe not pomegranate. If you’d like a quick and easy dessert, and you are in my situation of wanting a hot dessert but not having anything available, try this. I found a can of peaches in my pantry and the other ingredients are staples so….that fast, we had a tasty treat after dinner.
